* BannedInChina / AmericansHateTingle: Even with its locale changed to Boston, ''Un Ballo in Maschera'' was never performed in Sweden until the 1920's. When it was performed there, the Swedish derided it as historically inaccurate.



* ExecutiveMeddling: The censors gave Verdi a hell of a time with many of his operas Most obvious with ''Gustave III'' (about the assassination of a king!), which after several rewrite-or-elses, and ultimately (when tempers on both sides had cooled) a compromise with the censors, became ''Un Ballo in Maschera''.



* OldShame: Most of the operas that predate ''Rigoletto''. Verdi himself considered ''Alzira'' very awful.



* TomHanksSyndrome: ''Un giorno di regno'' (his second opera) and ''Falstaff'' (his last opera) are his only comedies.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Among others, he planned an opera based on ''Theatre/KingLear'' and another on Victor Hugo's ''Ruy Blas''.
